Survival Horror Game Outlast Coming In September

If you are fan of first person, horror genre video games, you may be interested in knowing that Red Barrel has announced that what they describe as their "darkest brainchild, survival horror experience", Outlast, will be released to Steam on September 4th 2013.

The game plops you into a place called Mount Massive Asylum, which is an abandoned hospital for mentally ill patients, that has recently been re-opened for research. Playing as an investigative reporter, it will be your job to find out exactly what's going on at the facility.

Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility and what he discovers walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.

Red Barrels announced today that its darkest brainchild, survival horror experience Outlast, will be available on September 4, 2013 for digital download on Steam for $19.99. Outlast received great accolades and awards this past E3, even earning the honor of "Most Likely to Make you Faint." White-knuckled attendees playing the game for the first time struggled to maintain composure (and consciousness) when faced with the frightening effects of Outlast's immersive audio design and the shocking truth of what lies inside Mount Massive Asylum. Outlast will keep hearts pumping and palms sweating as players' fiercest fears are awakened.

The industry veterans at the ten-person indie studio Red Barrels have created a game that traps players in the uncomfortable space between fear and intrigue. In Outlast, players will take on the role of Miles Upshur, a reporter investigating an anonymous tip that something is amiss at Mount Massive Asylum. Miles ventures blindly into the asylum where a bloody crime scene forebodes a gruesome story to unravel. Players will be in for a true derangement of the senses this September, where fainting may be the only way to escape.
